Money karma

I have a religious theory about money.

It seems that when we (Rich and I) spend our money foolishly and don’t watch our budget, large, somewhat unexpected bills land in our lap.  Bills like homeowner’s dues and the irrigation bill coming on the same day, or the shower breaking (last month), or what have you.

Then when we watch our spending and are more  prudent, it seems that whenever we are up against an unexpected cost, extra money finds its way to us.  Maybe I get some marketing consulting money, or we pay off a bill forever (no more student loans as of this month!) or I realize I paid the water bill twice and we don’t have to pay it this time around.

We call this phenomenon “money karma”.

Anybody else notice this phenomenon, or is it just a result of poor long-term financial planning on our part?

    I’ve noticed that as well. It always comes from somewhere.

    Yes. Me too. Perhaps we could form some sort of cult.

    I wonder if we hid money in a secret bank account then the gods wouldn’t notice and bestow us with windfalls that we could then go spend on useless western consumer goods.
